City-wide karaoke contest resumes this weekend at Rock'n Firkin, Central Station

Karaoke contest continues

The quest to crown the Tournament Capital’s best karaoke singer continues this weekend with two events.

Singers will compete in open competitions at Rock’n Firkin on Friday and at Central Station Pub on Saturday as part of the inaugural Kamloops Pub Star Karaoke Contest.

Each of the events will feature celebrity judges and two winners from each competition will advance to the finale.

Scheduled for Nov. 12 at Pogue Mahone, the finale is slated to feature celebrity judges Cameron Whitcomb of American Idol, radio personality Angie Hines and “Karaoke Cop” Kevin Roy.

Preliminary competitions are free to attend, but organizer Don Taylor said admission to the finale will be by donation, with proceeds going toward the Kamloops Food Bank.

There is no entry fee for competitors. Those looking to compete are asked to check in by 8 p.m. on the night of the competition.

Taylor said singers will be judged on vocal performance, song interpretation and stage presence.
